Healthiest Hot Chocolate EVER!

Hot chocolate

Easy, Easy, Easy.  

Delicious, Delicious, Delicious.  

Healthy, Healthy, Healthy.

I’m not sure why it took me so long to try this. Kids love hot chocolate. Truth be told, I love hot chocolate!  But the ingredients in most “hot chocolate mixes” make me shudder.  Why bother with them, when you can make your own and it REALLY IS NOT HARD AT ALL!  So just try it until your figure it out the proportions you like for yourself!

  • 1 mug full of raw milk (include lots of the top cream, if you like it)
  • 1 Tablespoon local raw honey
  • 1 heaped teaspoon raw cacao powder
  • pinch salt

Heat on low heat in a saucepan, whisk the cacao powder into the milk a bit – avoid touching the whisk to the sides or bottom of the pan – or stir with a wooden spoon. Heat until it is the temperature that you like.

Drink and enjoy!  You can vary the amount of honey and cacao powder.  You can add a pinch of cinnamon.

Everyone is going to love it!

    • Espresso is always good – except late at night when it may interfere with my sleep. I rationalise it like this: Espresso has less caffeine than other methods of preparing coffee. I buy organic coffee and try to support farmers practicing healthy practises. If I limit myself to one cup per day (ok, sometimes 2) I’m not stressing my adrenals too bad.
